Why Drake’s ‘Views” Is Hotter Than ‘ Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’


Some industry observers were surprised that Drake’s new
album “Views” has managed to crush the two-week sales of Beyoncé’s
“Lemonade” in just one week.
This is despite the fact that “Lemonade” was
much-hyped and controversial.

Billboard senior editor Jem Aswad said that Drake’s new
album “Views” crushing Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” is indeed
unanticipated. He explained that it could be because the hip-hop star has been
active in the past year, making hit songs like “Hotline Bling,”
Rihanna’s “Work” and “One Dance.” On the other hand,
Beyoncé only made one single “Formation,” which did not even hit the
top spot of the Hot 100.
“You can make the leap that her (Beyoncé) audience is
aging a little bit. It also just goes back to the fact that Drake’s fan base is
broader, younger and more motivated,” Aswad concluded.
